There are also more chances to win than ever before, with 16 awards up for grabs at KEiBA 2017, short for the Kent Excellence in Business Awards.
 
After an overwhelming number of applicants in the SME of the year category, organisers have decided to split the award into small business of the year and medium business of the year.
 
The awards, now in their ninth year, are run by Kent County Council and the KM Group.
 
Mark Dance, Kent County Council cabinet member for economic development, said: "When you look at the business community in Kent, it is immediately clear that KEiBA is one of the most exciting things happening here.
 
"The awards really do show off the quality of Kent businesses and demonstrate the hard work and entrepreneurial flair in action right across the county."
